The Pope's NEW LID

Whom Ever Wears The Hat Best.....

Just might be the new POPE.
They only have about 20 days to choose.
Below I have given you a few of the top contenders-
and left out anyone in their 80's.
A Pope in the 1970's made some sort of ruling that 80 was too old.
{I agree}

The Lid

I have paint shopped the Pope's Hat 
on a few of the men in the running.
Here we go.....

# 1
He looks really nice ,
perhaps even funny.
I love funny.

He's at the beach trying on the hat.

The North American - Canadian Favorite
He wanted to be very formal when he tried on the hat.

{he would have my vote if I could vote}
I looked at quite a few pictures of this man and studied his face.
He looks warm and seems to be laughing & schmoozing
a great deal.

You can see he's already ditching the old hat
in favor of the ever fabulous POPE'S LID!!

Go Lenny!!! Go Lenny!!!

Which Holy Man Would You Pick???

Tomorrow I start my new job.....
at last.

  1. Oh Renee,
    and you went to Saint Annes too.
    I want Cardinal Ouellet from Canada
    to be the next Pope. This was a funny post.
    We will have to wait for the smoke signal.

  2. So much fun!I'm with you - if we can choose our book by its cover -
    No.4 looks great!

  3. Oh Renée,
    I haven't a clue who should be Pope ...... someone in Blogland had written all about the contenders and given very negative reports on all of them !! ..... we will find out soon.
    So sorry that I missed your birthday Renée ......hope that you had a lovely day and that cake looked AMAZING. Sounds as if you are having a brilliant time with your mum ! Laughter is SO good for you.
    Wishing you the best of luck on your first day in your new job. Can't wait to hear all about it. Will be thinking of you. XXXX

  4. I don't know anything about any of them, but it would be nice for someone from our part of the world to take a turn, so maybe the Canadian. I hope you have a great first day at your new job!

  5. Anyone under 50 would be a bonus!
    Millie xx

  6. What???? No french Cardinal in the running...I am still waiting for a french pope. Would settle for the Canadian Cardinal, at least he has a french name!!

  7. Congratulations on your birthday and your new job!!! As for the Pope, I have to think about it a bit more, I hope that whoever it is is open minded and willing to have a little change in the church. Don't get me wrong, I am Catholic and very traditional but I think people are leaving the church in droves, and not just because of the abuse scandal, and I think that we need to look at why and perhaps make a few changes.

    Have a great day at your new job!



Thanks for participating!!

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
